Set my mind on a regime

Friday, January 11, 2013

This week I decided to detox as a result of going overboard at Christmas. I can't believe how easy it's been. Today is my last day. Did I miss bread? The answer is no and neither did I miss biscuits and cakes. All around me were delicious smells of cooking but I couldn't indulge. I have a little bit of psoriasis and that has completely tamed down probably due to not eating too many yeast bearing foods. I've had live yoghurt three times and found a beautiful lemon drink sweetened with apple. I think with this done I'll now begin to follow a programme without falling off the boat so to speak. The drawbacks is forever having to juice & to turn around and wash up the machines, sometimes I thought it almost as bad as cooking meals. I ended up doing batch juicing and nothing oxidized as I put citrus in the drinks. I figured if it's good enough for elephants & apes to survive on plant food it's good enough for me. So it's been a week of fresh veg - beetroot, lemons, limes,apples, parsley, watercress, carrots and broccoli. I don't really care if my weight hasn't gone down all that the main thing is I found I could turn down offers of delicious looking food and survive on my weeks plan. I must admit to feeling tired at times and said I think I'll have a steak when it's all over but at present I feel fine. I have to say it was expensive but worth it. I bought spirulina and wheat grass in powdered form but have stacks left to carry on with and I know juices will now form a part of my eating regime. Positivity is working, now for exercise 20 minutes in 2 10 minute spurts.

    Getting off the merry-go-round of bad food is not as bad as people think as long as the focus is on health. Congratulations on finding something new for yourself that has been really helpful. I juice carrots and apple sometimes. I live not too far from a juice bar, but it is really expensive to have someone juice things for you. Better to stick with the clean up routine.
